Menu-Planning Monday

It's time to plan the menu for October! I'm linking up with The Orgjunkie to share my plans!

Now you might have visited my last month and if so, welcome back! Pinterest is my best friend and tool for menu planning. I save all of the meals I plan to cook on a board for that month and then make a calendar as well. Sometime I get off easy and my Honey travels. On those nights, I don't "cook". We eat easy and quick dinners!

My October board can be found here. I still have a few more items to add but I'm almost there. I've even added lots of sweet treats!

My calendar for the month is below. You can match most all of these up with recipes I have pinned.

As far as shopping goes, I am headed out today to shop for the first 2 weeks. My goal is under $200. We have set a goal of $400 per month. I didn't meet it last month. Boo. I spent more like $500. This month I am saving my receipts so I know exactly what I am spending.

So, how is your meal planning coming along?
